How can I check if I have a genuine Windows Vista OS installed on my PC? Thanks in advance.

To know whether you have genuine winows copy run this command in run dialog "oobe/msoobe /a" without quotes. If you get a dialog box saying that "Thanks for using our product" then you have a genuine copy of windows. If the dialog ask you to activate the product then you own a pirated copy of windows.

OR.

Vista has the genuine advantage tool already running......if you go to the properties (either right click my computer then properties or control panel then system) at the bottom portion it'll tell you what the status is of your system.....either activated or not......if activated your legit, if not you may not be.

Thanks for your help. It IS a genuine version. Now I can upgrade to windows 7 easier.
